Question about Samsung ML 1210 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Unable to print

My computer recognizes my ML-1210 but, when I try to print, the system tray icon says that the document is being sent to the printer but nothing prints. Usually, the ML-1210 will warm up as though trying to print but the paper does not feed and nothing is printed. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software, updated the driver, and cleared and restarted the print spooler in Control Panel, Admin. No help. I am able to printo to my HP printer (manual switch from the parallel port), so I do not think it is a computer problem.

Re: Unable to print

If both printers are connected through a parallel switch, be advised that changes on the switch do not take effect until the computer is restarted. Those boxes worked fine under DOS, but Windows does not support them. Connect the Samsung printer to the USB port and make sure you use a good quality cable and not those thin and cheap cables.

Why does my Samsung ML-3712ND printer say "paper empty in MP tray" when it is not empty?

The MP tray is the fold down 50 sheet tray that is built in to the front door of the Samsung ML-3712. It is usually used for thick papers, letterheads and unusual sized paper.
Sometimes people mistake the 250 sheet cassette tray that slides underneath the printer for the MP tray.
If you want to print on plain paper in your cassette tray and you keep getting this message.
1. cancel all print jobs
2. try printing a new document ( you can make a new word document with just one line)

if that works
Usually one of the settings in the print job you are printing will be out of specification ( could be too small margins) and the printer will be trying to feed from the MP tray

If the new print job doesn't work, the problem is likely in your default printer settings/properties

My hp psc 1210 won't work with vista

I had a similar problem! Here is what eventually worked for me, after searching through postings for hours on end...

First, I made sure I had the new driver. Second, (and this might be different for you), my computer recognized my printer, but any time I sent something to print, it never made its way there. The little printer icon at the bottom said 1 document pending, then quickly said 0 documents pending, but nothing ever printed. When I ran HP diagnostics, it said everything was okay with the printer, and even printed a test page! But still nothing from any other program. So, eventually I went to control panel, then printers, then I clicked on the HP printer, then right clicked and went to properties. I changed two things in here, and I'm not sure which one was the solution. First, I changed the security settings (in the security tab) so that every user had access to all options for the printer. Second, on the advanced tab, I selected print directly to printer instead of the spool print documents option. And tada it worked!

May not solve anyone elses problem, but I didn't see this solution in any of the posting sites, so I thought I'd share it. Give it a try!
